Walk like an Egyp­tian

Three al­bums cut from a sim­i­lar melodic cloth as Macca’s lat­est.

Emitt Rhodes Emitt Rhodes

ABC/DUNHILL, 1970 Still only 20 at this point, the sec­ond al­bum by the man who later in­spired a doc­u­men­tary called One Man Bea­tles saw him dis­charge his melodic du­ties with al­most cocky in­sou­ciance. ★★★★

Nilsson Son Of Sch­mils­son

RCA, 1972 By turns re­flec­tive, rocky and oc­ca­sion­ally whim­si­cal, the eighth LP by the Fabs’ anointed “Bea­tle-across-the-wa­ter” is a pro­longed blast, com­pa­ra­ble in feel to Egypt Sta­tion. ★★★★

Gil­bert O’Sul­li­van Gil­bert O’Sul­li­van

BMG, 2018 As a boy, the Alone Again (Nat­u­rally) ivory­tin­kler once cut his own eye­brows to look like his hero – and he still holds Macca’s best songs as the gold stan­dard. The in­flu­ence is de­tectable on his ace new al­bum. ★★★★
